In the context of recharge.green, the Office for Economics and the Development of Mountain Areas of the Veneto Region is taking over the implementation of the aims of the project in the pilot area of the Province of Belluno. With its 69 municipalities and a surface area of 3,678 square kilometres, Belluno is the largest and at the same time most thinly populated province in the Veneto.

The Province of Belluno has particularly high nature value owing to the numerous animal species and highly diverse flora of national and international significance that is found there. Some 54% of its surface is a Natura-2000 area, while part of the province lies within the Dolomiti Bellunesi National Park and the Dolomiti d’Ampezzo Regional Park. Thanks to its unique geological and landscape features, the Dolomite “complex” has recently been designated a UNESCO world natural heritage site. Five out of nine of the Dolomites world natural heritage area locations lie within the Province of Belluno.

The main aim in this pilot area is to evaluate the use of hydropower with regard to biodiversity and other ecosystem services. This will be organised together with the local population.
